    That second one is really pretty! That's an interesting shape on the first. How well does it balance?

    um. i dont like the aesthetic of the basses. they look out of shape, like they were designed without the help of a computer or without checking symmetry, and carved out by hand.

    i mean, his skills look quite impressive, but the basses look weird, to me.

    and elricks/ritters/benaventes/etc. don't? to me, these look like high-end pieces of wood that you never really get an idea of till you're playing it.

    looks like a cross between a Carvin and an older Anthony Jackson Fodera.

    Not to be rude, but that screwed-down string retainer and the nut scream hack to me. Just spoils any appeal the bass might have, which otherwise is very little, too. :(

    At least a couple of the world's most famous & well-loved pieces were done *w/o the help of a computer* & *by hand*.
    I applaud anyone who can finish a completely-from-scratch; if I don't like the aesthetics but it looks for the most part functional, what does that matter? If anyone can do better, well, actions speak louder than words. ;)

    oops sorry the website is currently inactive. :)

    his work has greatly improved by the way, i'll try to get some more images of his newer works. good bass guitars are hard to come by here in the philippines, so it's really cool that someone is making custom basses here. :)
